SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) - A man is in custody after police say he stole a California Highway Patrol car, drove it onto a college campus and used it to commandeer a school bus with 10 students inside. The CHP says that after the 35-year-old Vallejo man took over the bus, one of the community college students choked him while another took the keys, turned off the engine and put it in park. The students fled while bystanders held the bus doors closed so the suspect couldn't escape.
